David Cecil Mounts and his wife, Margaret "Peggy" Cline settled in the Tug River Area in the early 1800's, probably right after their marriage in 1809. They lived in a large hollow tree while they were building their permanent cabin. This is a picture of them standing in front of their temporary home in the early 1800's. The woman on the right is not identified.
Angelina Stacy Wolford, Mother-in-Law - Pricey Cordelia Smith Wolford and Loretta Wolford Mode.
Cordelia was a licensed midwife and traveled by horseback or walked throught the mountains when she was called to deliver a baby.
Cordelia was married to John Wolford of Blackey and the mother of A. J. Wolford. Loretta was four years old when this photo was taken.
